Effect of zinc methionine supplementation on the growth performance in Vencobb strain broilers were studied from day old to 42 days. A total 240 broiler chicks were randomly divided into 3 groups. The broilers fed with basal diet were kept as control group (C), T1 group consists of the broilers fed with zinc methionine @ 45mg/kg in basal diet; and T2 group consists of broilers fed with zinc methionine supplementation @ 90mg/kg of basal diet. Body weight was taken from day 1 to day 42 and feed intake, body weight gain and feed conversion ratio (FCR) were recorded from day 7 to 42 on weekly basis. All performance traits showed significantly (P<0.05) increasing trend with the advancing age. Zinc methionine supplementation in broilers significantly (P<0.05) enhanced body weight, feed intake, average body weight gain and improved FCR. From the present study, it can be concluded that zinc methionine can be used as a diet supplement for increasing the overall performance in broiler chicks during their growth period. Dietary supplementation of zinc methionine @ 45mg/kg is recommended in broilers for overall better performance.
